This was with the felt need that the rich traditional knowledge systems need to be understood, documented in an integrated manner for conservation of Himalayan ecosystems and wellbeing of humans. Fragmented information in the form of isolated research papers or reports is available from different parts of the region but, so far there is no single 'Platform for Indigenous Knowledge Systems in the Himalayan region' that integrates the rich ethics behind traditional knowledge to assist the formal decision support systems for sustainable development of the Indian Himalayan region. Therefore, the present Network Program or a 'Platform Research for Traditional Knowledge Systems' is being proposed to attempt to converge TKS into decision support systems for sustainable development of the Indian Himalayan region (IHR).

Ethnobotanical uses of piscicidal plants

Harvesting of fish using piscicidal (fish poisoning) plants has been a common practice by the tribal people of Nagaland. The present study documents the piscicidal plants and their usage based on the information acquired from the local community. Many of these plants besides piscicidal property possess other therapeutic properties which are used in traditional medicines. Seventeen piscicidal plants which are traditionally used for fish catching and in preparation of local medicine from the state of Nagaland have been recorded, along with plant parts, viz. roots, bark, leaves, fruits and seeds. The paper enumerates and discusses the piscicidal and ethnobotanical utilization of these plants and their bio-active compounds. Some of these plants may have application in fish nursery management by local farmers substituting for rotenone.
